Hi @Watchdog

I have some more questions for you

1. Any roadmap to the Final Version available when will you relerase it

2. Will it have multilanguage and translations available for it

3. And will you merge your 2 products into one product ( WAM + WAV )

With best Regards

Hi @Mops21

1. The Final version will be released once the bug-fixes and issues are fixed and with increased detection ration
2. Yes, we will let you know once the language file is ready.
3. No, we will not merge them

I scanned a large malware collection and there were only 245 detections, of which 99% were "Heuristics.Broken.Executable," indicating that these files were corrupted. There were very few actual threats detected - maybe one or two. I had a look at the settings and saw that option to automatically upload unknown files is disabled by default. I enabled that and ran another scan. It took 18 hours to complete the scan and the detection rate was poor. I'm sure that detection rate will improve in time, but the exceptionally slow scan speeds are a problem. I'm running a third scan now, to see if any more threats are detected and it's just as slow.

Hi @Watchdog

Thank you very much for your answers

1. Have you a Changelog site for the WAV and WAM product to see that is changed and new

2. Will you add the Translation File into the Beta phase to WAV

3. Use WAV and WAM the same AV Scan Engines and the Cloud Scan Engine

With best Regards

Hey @roger_m, thanks for testing. I've sent you a DM in regards to these samples.

Hi @Watchdog

Thank you very much for your answers

I will wait for the translation File and test the software when it is out now in the Beta phase

1. Will you add the Scan Engines from WAV and from WAM to virustotal

2. WAV uses the Clam AV Scan Engine will it install in a new Filelocation on PC while I have installed it with SecureAPlus

With best Regards

Hey @Mops21
We will definitely work on having our engines listed on VT. As for your 2nd question I am not so sure, feel free to test it out and let me know of the result.
Thanks

Nice questions @Mops21 and they are all related to future feature developments:

1. For scanning email traffic we would need to have our software installed on webmail server. Idk how feasible that would be for the B2C product version but for B2B it is significant.
2. I'm not so sure about this one, and atm it's not on the priority list.

Thanks
